Who am I?

The Premise

Most of us think we can easily identify famous people…whether they are sports stars, movie stars of wanna-be video stars, we think we can say with impunity who they “are”…but can we?

Please identify the people described here.

Who am I?

I built a large ocean-going vessel, filled it with my protected sons and daughters and animals of each kind on Earth. It then rained for so long that the entire world flooded and I sent a bird out each day.  When it came back with leaves in it’s beak, I knew it was safe.

Who am I?

I was born in a cave on December the 25th to a virgin mother and a God-spirit-man father. I had 12 disciples and my followers were baptized to free them from their sins. After a last meal with my followers, I was killed, and buried. I was resurrected after three days in my tomb.

 

Now, I am pretty darned sure that everyone reading this went “dang Suze, those are too easy!. They are” and followed with Noah and Jesus Christ.”

And you would be wrong.

Who am I?

The first one is Gilgamesh (2150- 1400 BCE) who predates Noah.  The surviving Sumerian poetry giving the tale of Gilgamesh predates Homer by 1500 years, making it the oldest written literature.

The second is Mythras. His religion was the largest practiced mystery religion in the middle east before the time of Jesus. The core of almost every mystery religion is the belief in a dead then risen savior who was sacrificed to atone for the sins of Humanity.

Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

  2. Great post. Demonstrates that Christianity is a “borrowed” religion. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will make too many Christians wonder.
